Welcome to the wickedest city on earth....
Ye be warned - this series contains sexual situations, drug usage, foul language, crude humor, beaky parrots, and tedious historical details. This collection includes books 1-6.
Against the political stage of 1689 Port Royal, Jamaica, the unswerving Atia Crisp is thrust into the world of bondage, violence, beauty, and love. Shipwrecked and sold into slavery with her sister Livia, the pair are soon separated and Atia is used as a pawn in a card game. Captivated by her beauty, Atia is swiftly liberated by sugar merchant, Capitaine la Roche (also known as the pirate, Gator Gar), whose past is stained with blood and grief. La Roche works with a network of friends and allies including local strumpet, Cherry Banks, Theodore Binge the card shark and the kindly, medication loving Dr. Strangewayes. Soon Atia and la Roche are ushered away to safety after a mysterious outbreak of scarlet fever wreaks havoc on the city.
Within the luxuriant tropical confines of Dr. Strangewayes's plantation at the foothills of the Blue Mountains, bonds of friendship are formed and the fierce love between Atia and Capitaine la Roche becomes absolute. Atia is reunited with her sister, piratical father, and unexpected old friends. However, nowhere is safe as spies seek out both Atia and la Roche for the bounties on their heads. Neither of them can escape the shadows of their former lives and must rely on each other's strengths for survival. Their journey leads them to an inevitable conflict that threatens their world, but inches them closer towards freedom.

Very impressed by the audiobook quality
Yes. I think this would be an enjoyable listen anywhere - commuting to/from work, doing things around the house or just sitting down to listen.
I think perhaps fans of Game of Thones might enjoy this because there's a large variety of unique characters.
I don't know if I could chose just one favorite scene. There's such a variety - carriage chases, pirate battles, love scenes and wild celebrations.
Since the story takes place in Port Royal, I think the tagline should be - welcome to the wickedest city on earth.
I was very pleased with the quality of this audiobook series. The narrator did an excellent job capturing the emotions of the characters and conveying the meaning of the story.
